More than 20,000 deer-vehi- cle accidents are reported annu- ally, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. While trying to predict when and where a deer and motorist will meet is an impossible task, drivers who understand how deer behave are more likely to avoid a crash. The DNR advises motorists to use these driving tips to help avoid collisions with deer: See the signs. Deer-crossing signs are posted in high-risk areas. Drive with caution, especially in the posted areas. Deer don't roam alone. Deer often run together. If one deer is near or crossing the road, expect that others will follow. Nearly one-third of car-deer collisions each year occur between now and November, said the Min- nesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR), citing a national report. Minnesota is ranked eighth when it comes to car-deer crash totals, according to State Farm Insurance, which tracks the trends nationwide. Most states, the company reports, are seeing a decline in their numbers. There are two exceptions: Wyoming and Minnesota. Though most people would expect these crashes to be more likely in rural areas, motorists in urban regions of the state also need to watch out for these dangerous - and sometimes deadly- accidents involving deer. Minnesota has 3 Civil War digest: This week 150 years ago Confederate President Jeffer- son Davis, with General Braxton Bragg's army in North Georgia, surveyed the military scene and tried to establish harmony among the dissident generals. Sunday, Oct. 11, 1863 Heavy skirmishing continued between the Rapidan and Rappa- hannock Rivers in Virginia and Confederate General Robert E. Lee's army gained momentum in its newest move northward. Fight- ing erupted near Culpeper Court House, Griffinsburg, Brandy Sta- tion, Morton's Ford, Stevens- burg, near Kelly's Ford, and near Warrenton. Monday, Oct. 12, 1863 Raids continued in the west, at Buckhorn Tavern near New Mar- ket, Ala.; Merrill's Crossing and Dug Ford near Jonesborough, Mo.; near Byhalia, Quinn and Jackson's Mill, Miss.; West Liberty, Ky.; Web- bet's Falls, Indiana Territory and at Tulip, Ark. Federal troops operated against outlaws from Fort Garland, Colo- rado Territory, for several days. Tuesday, Oct. 13, 1863 The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia closed in towards Manassas and Washing- ton, following once more a pat- tern similar to that used at Sec- ond Bull Run in 1862. Skirmishing occurred near the important road center of Warrenton and at Fox's Ford and Auburn. Federal Major General George G. Meade, no lon- ger in severe danger of being cut off from Washington, headed towards Manassas and Centreville. Ohio voters decisively defeated Democratic governor candidate Clement L. Vallandigham, in favor of War Democrat John Brough, who ran on the Republican ticket. Val- landigham, who campaigned by mail from Canada, polled a surpris- ingly large vote despite his exile and condemnation as a Copperhead. Governor Andrew Curtin, a staunch Union supporter, was reelected in Pennsylvania. Union candidates also won in Indiana and Iowa. In North Georgia, Confeder- ate President Jefferson Davis, after touring Chickamauga and confer- ring with General Braxton Bragg and other officers, authorized Bragg to relieve Lieutenant Gen- eral D.H. Hill from command. Hill and Bragg had long been at odds.

Skirmishing also occurred at Farmington, Blue Springs and Sims's Farm near Shelbyville, Tenn.; near Warsaw, Mo.; Evening Shade and Fer- ry's Ford, Ark.; in the Choctaw Nation, Indian Territory;, and at Charles Town and Summit Point, WTV. Thursday, Oct. 8, 1863 It was a quiet day, even though fighting broke out near James City and along Robertson's River, Va., and near Chattanooga, Tenn. Confederate President Jeffer- son Davis arrived in Atlanta and praised Georgia's war effort, eulo- gizing the patriotism of troops. He was greeted by cheers. Friday, Oct. 9, 1863 Confederate General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia was on the move. After cross- ing the Rapidan River, the Con- federate troops moved west and northward once more, attempt- ing to turn'Federal Major General George G. Meade's right flank and head toward Washington. Meade's army had suspected a major move for several days and not that it was under way. Lee was trying both to take advantage of the Fed- eral reduction in force caused by sending troops west to reinforce Major General William Rosecrans in Tennessee, and to prevent any more Federal troop movement. However, the Army of the Potomac still greatly outnumbered the Confederates. Action in Virginia included a skirmish near James City and a five-day Federal expe- dition to Chesnessex Creek. Confederate President Jefferson Davis left Atlanta, and visited the Confederate troops in Marietta, just north of the city and repeated the efforts of the day before. Saturday, Oct. 10, 1863 Extensive skirmishing broke out in the Rapidan River area of Virginia as Federals probed to find the meaning of Confederate Gen- eral Robert E. Lee's advance north- ward. Fighting took place at Rus- sell's Ford on Robertson's River, Bethesda Church, James City, along with Racoon, Germanna and Morton's fords. Fighting also occurred at Tip- ton, Syracuse and La Mine Bridge, Mo.; Tulip, Ark.; Ingraham's Plan- tation near Port Gibson, Miss.; at Blue Springs and Sweet Water, Tenn.; and at Salyersville, Ky. Danger from dusk to dawn. Watch for deer especially at dawn and after sunset. About 20 per- cent of these crashes occur in early morning, while more than half occur between .5 p.m. and midnight. Safety begins behind the wheel. Always wear safety belts and drive at safe, sensible speeds for road conditions. If a vehicle strikes a deer, motorists should report the crash by calling local law enforcement, the sheriff's department, or the Minnesota State Patrol. By fol- lowing these tips and maximiz- ing one's situational awareness, it becomes less likely to experience a deer-vehicle crash. 00150 HINNE$OTA 1861 CIVI L WAR 1865 Chattanooga, Tenn. until Nov. 23, 1863. 3rd Minnesota Volunteer Infan- try - Participated in the capture of Little Rock, Ark., where they remained for garrison duty until April 28, 1864. 4th Minnesota Volunteer Infan- try- On the march from Helena, Ark., to Corinth, Miss.; then Mem- phis and Chattanooga, Tenn., until Oct, 20, 1863. 5th Minnesota Volunteer Infan- try- On duty at Bear Creek, Miss., until Oct. 14, 1863. 6th Minnesota Volunteer Infan- try - On garrison duty in Minne- sota until June 9, 1864. 7th Minnesota VolunteerInfan- try- On duty in St. Louis, Mo., untilApri120, 1864. 8th MinnesotaVolunteer Infan- try- On garrison duty in Minne- sota until May 24,1864. 9th Minnesota Volunteer Infantry - Moved to Jefferson City, Mo., for duty guarding rail- road from Kansas Line to near St. Louis.
